Hi, I’m a new writer and am just writing the first chapter of my first story. What would be a good amount of beats/lines for a chapter? I don’t want it to be too long and lose the reader or too short with not enough information. Bear in mind I am using very simple directing.
By episode requirements there must be at least 400 lines but I think at least 1,000.
I would concentrate on minutes rather than lines. I try to shoot for 15 minutes. To me personally, anything less than 10 feels like a waste.
